What a joke

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 February 2013
  • Summary: I liked the idea of the volume thing being on the desk and not mounted on the speaker. The speakers sit a ways away and I thought this was a great idea. BUT... when my computer is booting up these speakers give horrible feedback. Even with volume all the way down.

Amp Blew after 2 min of play

Anonymous, Newegg
11 January 2009
  • Summary: Didn't buy them from Newegg - but I wish I had - it's been 3 weeks and I still haven't gotten my money back yet.
  • Pros: Sounded good when they played, looked nice. I liked the idea of a built in mic.
  • Cons: After playing music at a moderate to high volume for 2 min - the entire system blew.

aweful

andrew s., Newegg

  • Summary: I'd never buy Altec Lansing speakers ever again, these were really cheaply manufactured.
  • Pros: Bought as gift for someone - but I dont have anything good to say about these, they really need to pull these off the shelves or fix them. I didnt buy them from newegg, wished i saw the reviews here first.
  • Cons: These HUM really bad as others state. I threw them in the garbage.

Poorly Shielded, Useless

Steve P., Newegg
25 April 2008
  • Summary: Don't buy these if you use wireless internet or Iphone, they will be useless.
  • Pros: Sound is OK if you turn off all your wireless items.
  • Cons: These are so poorly shielded that all I hear when I turn them on is a buzzing and loud thumping. I've moved my wireless router as far away as possible, but not much help.

Unshielded sattelites

Jeffrey B., Newegg
22 March 2008
  • Summary: Now using these in bedroom connected to a mp3 player. Spend a bit extra and avoid Altec Lansing
  • Pros: look cool
  • Cons: The speakers are not shielded or if there is shielding it's very poor. Cannot put speakers next to monitor or it will cause severe distortion. Contact manufacturer about problem and they responded " Rearrange your desk " " Speakers cannot be within 3 feet of the monitor ". Speaker for the sub is ...

Sad excuse for speakers

Unbearable wireless interference

Raul Crespo, Amazon
17 January 2008
  • Summary: Although the sound quality is excellent, the speakers go crazy as soon as a cell phone rings within a 20 ft radius. They make a horrible sound that is unbearable to listen to and destroys any pleasure that could be enjoyed by the speakers... I returned this item
